Open next Third Space beer & #findyourhappyplace
Beer brats are a grilling staple, especially in Wisconsin. So you know we just had to fire up the grill and give you some Third Space infused beer brats! Some folks may rather use Light It Up Lager for this recipe, but we were thinking the more intense flavors of Heavenly Haze would really pop in this classic & budget friendly grilling option! These juicy bratwursts simmer in beer with onions for extra flavor, then finish over direct flame for a char-grilled crispy exterior.
1 Dish for marinating
- 1 lb Bratwurst
- 1 medium yellow onion
- 24 ounces Heavenly Haze or Light it Up Lager
- 1 bag brat buns
Marinate the Brats at least 7 hours before grilling. Add the bratwurst sausages, sliced onion, and beer to a large airtight container or resealable bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 7 hours.
Prepare your grill for 15-25 minutes.
Boil the Brats! Transfer the brats (& onions, & beer) to a medium cast-iron skillet or a heat-safe Dutch oven. Transfer the cast iron/Dutch oven directly to the grill grates over the low heat zone. Close the grill. Bring the brats up to a boil, then boil for 10-12 minutes or until they reach about 145 degrees F.
Grilling Time! Once the brats have been boiled use your grill tongs to transfer the Heavenly boiled wursts directly to the grill grate. Grill 2-3 minutes per side, charred as desired and the internal temp reaches 160. Move to plate and let rest before serving.
Serve brats on a bun of your choice topped with beer braised onions or as desired!
You may toast your buns and of course top with your favorites like mustard, sauerkraut and more!

Froggy Glazed Ribs
Perfect for the grill! This recipe is made for either beef ribs or can be subbed for pork ribs. You choose. Just remember to open that beer and enjoy!
- 1 pack ribs
- 1/3 cup hoisin
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 cup Frog Weisse
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1/8 tsp five-spice powder
Open Frog Weiss for first sip.
If the ribs are still joined together, cut them into individual pieces. Place them in a shallow baking dish, meat side down.
Mix the hoisin sauce, sugar, and vinegar in a bowl. Gradually stir in the Frog Weiss, then add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and five-spice powder and mix well. Pour the marinade over the ribs, turning them to coat, then turn them meat side down again. Cover and refrigerate for meat to cool. One hour before cooking, remove the ribs from the refrigerator. Preheat the grill or broiler to high.
Transfer the ribs to a platter, and pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 12 to 15 minutes, until reduced to 1 cup (250 ml).
Grill the ribs, turning to cook on all four sides and brushing them with the reduced marinade, for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, 16 to 20 minutes total. Serve any remaining marinade as a dipping sauce.
Open next Third Space beer and enjoy!
